Having Trouble

I'm stuck on the last part of the mission Rommel's Last Stand. I have to get to the anti-aircraft gun and shoot down enemy planes. It seems easy enough, but when I go towards it, there's 3 enemies on the roofs that always kill me. I'm playing on Veteran, and within a couple steps, I'm dead. I've tried killing them all, but I don't have time to kill all three of them and make it to the gun because by the time I kill all three of them, the plane drops the bomb or whatever and kills me. I've spent over 3 hours trying to figure out different ways to get past it, and none of them work. Any advice?

hmmm... keep trying really DIFFERENT approaches, to see if one gets you farther. i have not played this on veteran since i beat it a year or more ago, so i can not remember exactly which part has the 3 guys.

if you have smoke grenades, use them. they are important and should only be used when necessary, so you do not waste them. but if you are stuck for 3+ hours, i would say it is ok to try them out.

otherwise maybe even try a regular grenade. anything that could potentially kill more than one of them at once is good.

Bad news dude. I was on the same part with the same scenario as you.

You have to restart the level and when you get this part again, kill the guys behind the bunker, then rush to the big gun, but make sure your boys go with you. They will take care of the enemy on the roofs while you hammer away at the planes.

Here's my 2 cents....

...I tried using smoke but I could not find the sweet spot to throw it without it impairing my view of the oncoming aircraft.

Just like Shaaady says the key is different approaches BUT that only works if you have a good checkpoint to start from. It was not until I had almost finished this game that I learned how to use the checkpoint system to my advantage.

Sorry if you already know this:

We've all been stuck with bad checkpoints and I thought that was just what I had to accept...I was wrong. I learned to save at certain checkpoints and then experiment on tough sections of the game.

i.e. The very AA gun section you're talking about was IMPOSSIBLE with the checkpoint that I had, I was too far away from the gun with too many enemies still on the roof. I tried for hours every day. The only way I was able to do this was to restart the level (sorry) and save ONLY the checkpoint that I knew were good. As I approached the square with the AA gun in it I saved that checkpoint. I did not save another checkpoint until I knew I had killed 99% of the Germans on the roof. If I made a mistake I could restart the game and begin from my good checkpoint and try again. It is REALLY important NOT to select "Save and Quit" form the menu if you have a bad checkpoint.

After that it just a matter of experimenting with different strategies.

Good luck

I was afraid I'd have to end up restarting the level. That's what my cousin told me to do, but I really didn't want to do it because it took me a while to get through it. I also have no more smoke grenades, so that's another down side.

I've never saved checkpoints before. Once I see a checkpoint reached, I sometimes just quit and play later. I never thought to strategically save certain checkpoints. I'll definitely have to try that out.

Thanks for the advice guys, it was helpful. Now let's see if I can use it and get passed this blasted part.


EDIT: Yeah it was a lot easier this time around. I think what happened before was that I waited back for my men to kill everyone and it got down to where there was only a few left and it saved the checkpoint and I had to run all the way to the AA with the men on the roofs. This time I actually helped and went forward and was able to get it within two tries. A lot easier this time around.

Now the first mission as an American, I tried that on Veteran when I skipped Rommel's last part and I died constantly without going anywhere. Where in the hell are you supposed to go? With that one, I have no idea whatsoever.

Congrats on the AA square....I do need more clarification as to where you are now though, it's been awhile for most people and I need more details.

Well right now, I'm at "The Lock" on the Battle of Caen where you gotta do the 5 objectives, A-E(secure the town hall, post office, flak, church, and the German HQ.) I'm not having any problems with that really, not yet anyway, but D-Day, the first mission as an American kicked my ass when I tried it earlier. You gotta climb a rope which is the easy part. Then you gotta maneuver your way through all these trenches and craters without dying. I've read through and people say to use your smokes wisely and smoke your way through, but I still think that's gonna be tough as hell.

Nah not too bad, just be smart, advance at the right time and stay low. The big building at the top was tricky, I ended up just bum-rushing it and going into the bunker entrance...let my guys do most of the clean up.


btw...don't write off the section you're on now. For my money the HARDEST part of the game...enjoy.

I think it'll take me a while to get through the opening mission on D-Day. I seem to always get killed. I'll get it eventually.

You were right about writing off the part I was on. Damn was it hard. The church took me a while, but the German HQ was the hardest part of all. It took me a while but I finally got it. the mission after that was harder in my opinion. The end part anyway. I forgot what it was called, but you had to hold off the Germans in this house for 3 minutes and eventually a Tiger comes and you gotta put explosives on it. That took me a while to do. Once I changed the way I was going about it, I got it within the second or third try.

I can't do the beginning of D-Day at all. No matter where I go I get killed. Whether I go to the right or the left, any way I try, I die. I don't see how I can get passed it.
